Our programming ranges from classic plays to new writing, physical theatre, musicals, live and streamed broadcasts, spoken word, classic cinema, and stand-up comedy, created, and performed by the very best local, national and international artists.
We invest in the future of Indian theatre by developing talent, building, and diversifying our audiences, partnering with local companies and collaborating with the very best arts organisations in the world.
This exchange of ideas, creativity, and resources ensures the NCPA is not only the host of but the creator of extraordinary theatre experiences.
We aim to play a significant part in the development of the new generations of artists, technicians, and enthusiasts, by building an extensive nationwide learning and participation programme supporting creative education for people of all ages. Through much of our ever-evolving, responsive work, our aim is to help expand horizons for all, not just by engaging in the experience of live performance but also through a series of projects, events and classes that enhance our life skills and feed into every walk of life.
Above all, we value the audience experience. Creating rich cultural experiences that are representative while offering a diverse view of society. Stories that broaden our horizons and dare us to think differently.
